Background

The Global Healthcare Innovation Alliance (GHIA) began as a program in Public Policy at Duke University to research the alliances formed to address the Ebola outbreak of 2014. The Ebola outbreak highlighted the need for collaborative investment in R&D for future global health alliances. Conversations with stakeholders revealed a desire for legal and policy tools to facilitate alliance formation. Using samples of agreements and contracts from representative organizations, GHIA worked to identify and analyze development and other agreements in order to expedite multi-stakeholder negotiations.

GHIA was spun out into the non-profit GHIAA in early 2017 and is continuing to develop tools and best practices to accelerate global health alliance formation.
